sa tasmin deva-sadana


asino yogam asthitah


pratyahrtendriya-gramo


yuyoja mana atmani.



sah  =  he (Ajamila);

tasmin  =  at that place (Hardwar);

deva-sadane  =  in one Vishnu temple;

asinah  =  being situated;

yogam asthitah  =  performed bhakti-yoga;

pratyahrta  =  withdrawn from all activities of sense gratification;

indriya-gramah  =  his senses;

yuyoja  =  he fixed;

manah  =  the mind;

atmani  =  on the self or the Supersoul, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.



In Hardwar, Ajamila took shelter at a Vishnu temple, where he executed the process of bhakti-yoga. He controlled his senses and fully applied his mind in the service of the Lord.

The devotees who have  Lord's consciousness  may live comfortably in our many temples and engage in the devotional service of the Lord. Thus they can control the mind and senses and achieve the highest success in life. This is the process descending from time immemorial. Learning from the life of Ajamila, we should vow with determination to do what is necessary to follow this path.
